    "EXCELLENT!"

    I'm usually willing to try out a new author's first offering, and this one is an absolute hit! Grabbed my attention with the first word and held it until the very last word. Ms. Clark has a smart, hip style of writing that is fun to read along with an excellent story line. I hope that she will continue putting out a couple of books a year that are as good as this one.

    "Enjoyable and entertaining"

    I bought this because of the author's celebrity, not expecting a whole lot. I was delighted to listen to it. I would have given it a 4 1/2 if possible. I felt that the story was good, dialogue was snappy, and it had some flair. But I had the plot line before the end and it lacked the twist at the end which could have made me rate it a five.

    I will buy the next one not for the author's name but for her talent. Nice job!

    "Guilt By Association"

    I had read the non-friction of the O.J. Trial by Marcia Clark and enjoyed it so decided to try her fiction story. I enjoyed it and hope it becomes a series. Knight acted more like a cop in the story than a D.A. as the case was no where near ready for trial. Interesting story with lots of inside information and a tour guide of the L.A. area. January LaVoy did a great job in narrating the story.

    "Very Pleasant Surprise"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm wary about reading books by celebrities or semi-celebrities. But Publishers Weekly gave this a great review, so I gave it a shot and am glad I did. The pacing is excellent, as are the detailed settings and the fun plot twists. I felt I learned something about being a prosecutor in L.A. and had a great time doing so.

    "Pleasant Surprise"

    Okay, I'll admit it. I bought the book solely because of the author's name, having no idea whether Marcia Clark could write a good book. She could. Good story - several twists - humour - mystery - insight into the legal system. I'd read another.

    "Way to go, Marcia"

    I was a little wary of listening to Marcia Clark's book, (I didn't know if she could write), but what a nice surprise! Good story, great dialog, and the narration was spot on. If she writes another book, I for one will download immediately.

    Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !

    "A great listen"
    What did you love best about Guilt by Association?

    I thought I knew the ending somewhere in the middle but I was so wrong. The outcome was so left field.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reader's performance was pheonomenal, she kept me very interested.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely move on the more of the Marcia Clark series.

    "DA or Cop?"

    This is a well written and well narrated effort. The story is very plausible and current. However, the words and actions of the protagonist are much more like those I would expect from a cop than from a DA.. What kind of DA, even from the elite section of the DA's office, has the time this one does to do investigations such as are found in this book. And what DA thinks, when completely covered by a blanket, that something pushed against her neck feels like a snub-nose 44 magnum?

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book but it would have worked better with the lead as a cop not a DA.
